Just how much have we changed in the last 50 years? If we were to see a film of a popstar or filmstar relaxing at home with their wife and children, what would we expect? The Osbornes maybe? In the 1950's one of the countries biggest stars was Dennis Lotis, who at the time happened to be a resident of Mill Hill. So famous was he that Pathe News made a film about his homelife. I find it fascinating to watch films such as this. Nice to see the footage of an old bubblecar (I liked it so much I wrote a song about it!). I have an affection for one, as my elder brother had one and it was a rare treat to have a trip in it.
One of his best known films was "What every woman wants". I watched it and I think times have changed and maybe they want different things in 2022, but it may give some of you an Xmas card idea!
